“Fabulous location, spotlessly clean and comfortable with nice added touches.”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Loved the convenient location close to Ashbourne but in a quiet and pretty village of Clifton. We really appreciated the added extras after a 30 hour door to door commute from Sydney. We did not drop into a shop on the way and Charlotte had baked a beautiful cake that, along with the well stocked tea tray was a most welcoming surprise. The decor and quality of everything in the cottage was great and Charlotte's notes made it so easy to settle into our temporary home. The only bad point about our stay was leaving. Derbyshire is now our favourite area in the UK and we hope to return to Christmas Cottage to enjoy more.

“Home from home cottage in a peaceful village location.”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Christmas Cottage and Clifton provived more than expected. Cottage was great and well equiped. Lovely,warm and cosey. The Cock Inn was welcoming and the Speedy Shopper(look it up!) meant we were never without. Ashbourne was only a 15 minute walk away as well as lovely walks from the doorstop meant the car was never used. Well worth a visit if you are intending a quiet get a way or a base to explore the Peak District.

“A comfortable, relaxing and convenient bolt-hole to discover the surrounding area.”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a lovely stay at Christmas Cottage in Clifton. Charlotte the owner left us a scrummy welcome pack which included a home-made chocolate cake - delicious.
We visited Ashbourne - you can walk in from Clifton, the weather was glorious the whole time we were there. We walked to nearby Mayfield and had lunch at the Rose and Crown. Our two little dogs really enjoyed all the walks around Clifton and Mayfield.
The cottage is very clean and comfortable, it has everything you may need - hairdryer, microwave, iron etc.
The bed was extremely comfy we both slept really well. I would recommend this cottage very highly.

“A home from home”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

What a beautiful little cottage! Perfect quiet location, pure tranquility! Close to some stunning views and attractions. Definatly recommend visiting dovedale and crossing the stepping stones over the river and up to Thorpe cloud, the view from the top is breathtaking!

The cottage was cosy and peaceful and beautifully decorated. From the second you walk in you can't help but feel a pure sense of instant relaxation.

Worth every penny and cannot wait to come back again! Would reccommend to everyone I know!

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Christmas cottage.

Thank you for your comments, I'm so glad you had time to visit some of the amazing places nearby. There are so many things to see within a very short distance and I agree, the view from the top of Thorpe Cloud is incredible. I'm glad you found the cottage such a good base from which to explore and that you liked the way it is styled - we are constantly trying to improve it to make sure our guests have a relaxing and enjoyable break.

I hope that you will be able to visit Christmas Cottage again soon.

What a welcome! travelled from Devon to this beautiful part of the country, on arriving at this pretty village of Clifton we were thrilled with our choice of location, ,Christmas Cottage was everything we could have wished for, quaint, cosy and beautifully presented with all that you could possibly want in it to give you a very successful holiday, plus a bonus of a yummie chocolate fudge cake and welcome pack from Charlotte (the kind and generous owner ) what a tranquil place to unwind, local pub with the excellent food and landlord.Great places to visit all around the peak district, we were able to hire cycles and do the Tissington and Monsal trails, stunning scenery everywhere we visited. Fantastic holiday!
